Something wrong with my graphic card

I have this Gefore FX 5500, for like 6 months i've been playing 3d games using this graphic card i don't seem to have any problems with it, but when i stopped playing 3D games i've been having problems with my screen, after an hour using my pc, the screen would go blinking for like 3 secs and screen would go blank and pc won't respond i have to restart and it would go back to normal but after sometime it would go black again and sometimes a portion of the screen, like half of it, would go black then pc froze.. i had it checked the technician just said about resetting the VGA and it will go back to normal, but i'm still having the same prob...

Same solution as earlier user.

My Galaxy Zeus GeForce Fx 5500 can't play 3D games it said that hardware accelerated Direct3D 9+ is not available because the display driver does not support it. What should I do?

Install the correct XP driver that you can get from here
BTW there is no driver for it on Vista and 7 - it's too old and weak for them.

GEFORCE FX 5500 video quality low, slow motion videos and games

well if your trying to game on a pc the 5500 isnt quite sufficient. If you dont know about nvidia you are about 5 generations back of days cards. So the card wont handle any of todays games. If your really trying to game i suggest you build/buy a new rig. But as far as playing videos, quality should be good. Try goin to and downloading the newest drivers.

Inno 3d Fx 5500 video card problem

Just so yo don't void your warranty send it back for repairs or at least talk to someone at the computer manufacturers website. Many of the websites have a chat so you can talk to them immediately. It can't be anything else that I could think of except your video card. Double check the video card type in Device manager.
